What is Danish & Fun?
Danish & Fun is a weekly meeting for people who want to learn and help each other with practicing Danish.
There are no certified teachers, course plans, or evaluations of your learning process - we meet to speak Danish. Coordinators from Lærdansk make a programme for each session full of fun activities to help facilitate the conversation. The setting is informal and the atmosphere is relaxed nevertheless the main focus is still on learning and practicing Danish.
At Danish & Fun you can meet other internationals who are keen to improve their Danish. We also encourage Danes to come and so we are always on the lookout for volunteers who can keep up the conversation. Thus, you are always welcome to bring your Danish friends!
Danish & Fun takes place every Sunday from 13:30-15:45 in the room M2 next to the cafeteria in DOKK1 (with a few exceptions – check the events).
We meet at 13:30 and split into groups of four - to ensure that everyone gets a chance to speak. Then the Lærdansk coordinators present the outline for the particular day, and Danes from the International Community together with some Danish volunteers will circulate the room to ease the conversation and activities.
Advice to participants
1. Talk, talk, talk - We are here to practice Danish and you do that best by using the language actively! Don’t be afraid to make mistakes – we are all learning and we all make mistakes. You don’t learn, if you don’t try.
2. Talk to other internationals - Danish is not your native language but that doesn’t mean that you can’t learn from each other and practice together. Most participants will be internationals and there won’t be enough Danes to match each workgroup.
3. Be open-minded and helpful - Instead of laughing at others’ mistakes, gently correct them and explain what they did wrong. Next time it might be you making a mistake you would like to learn from.
